Your skin has a unique characteristic : its surface is slightly acidic, with an average pH value of 5.5. The pH value runs from 0 to 14, with 7 being neutral. A pH value indicates how acidic or alkaline a solution is. Values below 7 are increasingly acidic.
1. Nature has provided our skin with a natural defence mechanisms - a natural protective barrier also known as the "acid mantle layer". It sits on the surface of the skin and has a slightly acidic pH value of 5.5. An intact acid mantle protects our skin from harmful pathogens and helps to regulate skin's moisture balance.
2. However, most conventional cleansers in the market are usually alkaline. Consistent or prolonged usage of alkaline cleansers causes damage to the protective acid mantle, giving rise to various skin problems such as dry skin, irritation and inflammation.
Protective acid mantle is also called a "Barrier Function". In order for your skin to be problem-free, acid mantle needs to be intact. Studies show that the natural skin pH value is at 5.5 which is mildly acidic.
